Abstract

According to the literature, between 6% and 25% of all liver transplant patients are likely to purchase incisional hernia and eventually face the issue of undergoing surgical hernia surgery. In the population of transplant patients, obesity, advanced age, diabetes mellitus, primary liver disease, and type of immunosuppression are known risk factors for the development of incisional hernias. This study will examine the effect of muscle stretching of the abdominal wall and relaxation induced by botulinum toxin A, in order to facilitate the fascial closure allowing the complex ventral hernia repair after liver transplantation.
